30 Seconds With GWAR's Oderus Urungus
By day Dave Brockie is just regular awesome, but by night he fronts the legendary metal band GWAR as the ancient, profane barbarian Oderus Urungus. We traveled through the scummiest parts of the universe to see what we could find out about him in 30 seconds.

RO: What is worst song in the world?
Oderus Urungus: I don't know! To know that I would have to listen to every song in the world, and I have no intention of doing that.
RO: What is the best lyric in the world?
OU: GWAR, "Baby Dick Fuck"
The delivery room is as still as a tomb
I fuck the child while it's still in your womb
The child is now dead, and you start to blubber
Fuck your warm corpse with your child as a rubber
RO: Someone throws a beer bottle at you onstage. What do you do?
OU: Fucking ignore them, but secretly assign my slaves to track them down and beat the living shit out of them.
RO: Without worrying about space, time, or the laws of physics, what would be the ultimate gig to play?
OU: Always wanted to play a gig on the surface of the sun. While playing with myself. And Jimi Hendrix.
RO: What would you buy with a million dollars?
OU: Why would a cosmic chaos demon that takes anything that he wants have any need for this "money?" I will tell you--I like to wipe my ass with it. So I would trade it in for 100's and go to work. Not really "wiping", just smearing the poo around my ass cheeks.
RO: What would you buy with your last dollar?
OU: Another dollar!
RO: If you could canonize another musician who would it be and of what would they be the patron saint?
OU: By "canonize", do you mean load someone up in a cannon and shoot them across a parking lot, or just shoot at them? Jeez, I have already broken three lap tops trying to get this fucking thing done. I guess Ted Nugent, and he would be the patron saint of dumbass guitar players.
RO: What will be written on the plaque beneath the giant statue future generations erect in your honor?
OU: "He was an asshole."
GWAR plays Saturday, October 27 at House of Blues with DevilDriver, Cancer Bats, and Legacy of Disorder.
